Pune (Maharashtra), May 20 : Around half a dozen of the activists belonging to Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) were detained today for disrupting an examination conducted by theailway Recruitment Board (RRB) here.

The examination was for the aspirants in Class-III posts such as motorman, driver and engine assistant.

Upset over the absence of Marathi candidates at the centre, the MNS activists demanded that outsiders or the non-Marathi should be barred from appearing in this examination.

Consequently, the irate MNS Sainiks ransacked the examination centre and tore up the question papers and answer sheets.

"There was not a single candidate from Maharashtra in this exam. All the boys were from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, etc. So we ransacked the centre and tore the exam papers. We demand that in Maharashtra only sons of the soil should get a job," said Bala Shedge, an activist of MNS.
